HOWEVER I think children can understand the fact that being lazy is not a good thing and as they read this story they will see, through his dream, that his life could be much more productive if he was not lazy and the dream is not going away even though he has woken up from it once!
As a family, we love all the Mr. Men books including this one.
Easy to add to a collection, one of the first and also bests Mr Men books. Don't forget the library! See the numbers on the bottom at the side of the books, and some random black (or nothing sometimes) above it? That's where you should add it to a collection.
Read to your toddler, or watch them read themselves. The wording is great, and works a treat for the children who can read certain words and spark a wire in their brain which gives them a real picture of what happens it there and it's lovely to see them learn.
Characters and Settings (and events)
The characters, settings and events in this book are not very interesting (that's how it is supposed to be). Below is a brief description of each.
Sleepyland - it is an area where everything looks very tired; the trees hang low and the birds sometimes fall out of the sky; the grass only needs cutting once a year and the there were only four hours in every slow day! It is very quiet and peaceful indeed!
Mr Lazy - he likes to sleep a lot; in fact, that is his favourite thing to do! He is pink and round and has breakfast when we would have tea! He would sleep for some time, a very long time: when he finally would wake up, it would be way past midday.
Mr Busy and Mr Bustle - these two men are, as their names say, always busy and bustling! They come to Mr Lazy, wake him up from his nap, and make him work really hard: cooking and cleaning floors, washing plates and polishing windows, making beds and clipping hedges, chopping wood and dusting furniture, etc.
For younger children, each story is just short enough to read to them at bedtime and not too long so it holds their interest. For older children, they can either read them to themselves or you can read them a few each bedtime.
My children are 3 and 7 and both love them.
Buy and enjoy, as a story with your children, or a nostalgic trip down memory lane!
